Incredible food. Incredible service. Really lovely atmosphere. Huge portions. What’s not to love?
Great, delicious food, with a great selection of cocktails.
Nice place with tasty sushis. Very attentive stuff. 100% recommend.
Food 🍱 is an absolute MUST TRY! Phenomenal! Kind and knowledgeable staff! Great ambience! Highly recommended place to visit.
Tasty food - great sushi and skewer meats. Highly recommend the cocktail ‘ume ocha’ and the sake flight selection. Considering this is in prime location, prices are fair.
The food, the service was incredible. Get the tasting menu, it’s delicious
The place is cool with a good vibe. Everyone loved the food and the service was spot on.
The food was superb _ signature Iberico pork was magnificent - but every dish we had was delicious. Service good too.
Staff were so helpful and accommodating adapting the sushi roll for my son who then devoured 3 plates of!!
The bao buns were scrumptious and the corn cob with wasabi the best corn I have ever had.
Enjoyed all our plates and will be back
Good range of gins (need more choice of tonics e.g. mediterranean)
Decent food but way over inflated prices! Nothing that really sets it apart from other Japanese restaurants
Food was yummy but just not filling despite spending quite a bit
Robata is an amazing restaurant and I would recommend anyone to go there. The food is delicious and such variety, the vibe is really nice and the staff are great.
Ridiculously expensive, slow service, mean portions.
Whatever they grilled the mushrooms and asparagus in was delicious!
Great service & food. Really enjoyed our experience
Great food, great service and great value for the quality.
Had a great time
London Festival tasting menu was good but was very disappointed there was no black cod
The food was very good. We love he tuna sashimi and beef short rib bao bun. We were sitting outdoor and the atmosphere in the street was great.
Best food I have ever had, great staff very helpful and friendly
Amazing food. Loved everything!
Definitely visiting again
Was all delicious! Staff were also lovely and great atmosphere!
Very good food but a bit pricey.
Fantastic food, friendly service and delicious cocktails. Hot dishes were a little slow coming out and the meat skewers are pricey for what you get, but we’ll definitely be back.
Really good food and wine. Shared a few plates between us and was all very good
The food is absolutely amazing! Great service and staff are very friendly and always greeted with a smile. Ambience is not great...can be a little noisy.
Loved this experience! Expensive but worth the money and unbelievable food
We had the tasting menu. Food was excellent although it's quite a pricey option.
Excellent food, delicious, helpful guidance and brilliant service
it's terrible and over-priced, 6 people for 407 pounds? and as a Japanese, it's not japan food
Excellent food! Great flavors and a variety of options. We did a variety of small plates and skewers, and all were excellent.
Great cocktails and food. Waitress was very friendly.
Wife’s birthday, staff were great. Not very busy probably due to the football at Wembley
We had tasting menu and one meal for gluten free! The flavours were outstanding and whilst portions may look small it was perfectly adequate.
The ‘starter’ was shared amongst all and we chose different mains! The cost of the meal was £340 ish for 5 people with bottle of wine and beers. No dessert. Probably not for everyday but for my birthday lovely.
I would like to let you know that the waiter who was serving on Saturday evening was extremely rude. It was unnecessary and disappointing as it put a bad vibe on the evening. The food and place otherwise is very nice.
Picked this restaurant on previous reviews and it didn’t disappoint. Food was very tasty. Each dish has a distinct flavour. Lots to chose from. Can highly recommend it.
Ni would definitely recommend the tasting menu as it incorporates all their best dishes
Amazing food and atmosphere! Would definitely return
A fab place to go for after work drinks, dinner and even a date! Carlos was our waiter for the evening and was incredible! We couldn't fault the food and had the best time! We’ll be back!
Great service and compliments to the chef - the food was delicious!
